Sculptra®: A unique way to boost collagen and sculpt youthful contours for up to two years! At drs skincare Hamilton, ON
Wrinkles and lines that “age you” and take away from your youthful, natural vitality do not have to be a fact of life. Likewise, you do not have to resort to “going under the knife” to restore the healthy, rejuvenated appearance that you can be proud of, as our team at drs skincare in Hamilton, Ontario, offers a “light-touch,” low-risk, and natural-looking alternative to surgical procedures: soft tissue or dermal fillers.
And, in the world of cosmetic filler injections, Sculptra® stands out favourably.
Why Sculptra® is special
There are many different types of fillers that Health Canada approves for use in cosmetic treatment. You may be familiar with some of them; the Juvéderm family of fillers is made from a popular and naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid.
All of these injectable solutions are designed to be administered precisely into lax or sunken areas with thin needles. They contain beneficial substances for firming, smoothing, and otherwise “filling in” depressions and wrinkles.
Sculptra® is a PLLA-based filler. Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic material long used in medical circles as components of dissolvable stitches and implants. So, it is time-tested as a biocompatible (tissue-friendly) polymer. Since it gets along so well with natural tissues, it is predictably and naturally absorbed by the body.
Sculptra® also stands out as a “collagen stimulator” and builds collagen gradually over time to areas injected giving a person a natural restoration to areas of volume loss. Common areas treated include the following:
Treatment is delivered over a series of sessions where gradual increase in volume and skin quality can be appreciated over time in the areas injected. Results can last up to two years. Maintenance treatments are often suggested and the interval can vary from one patient to another. Sculptra treatments can be combined with other injectables and devices.
